Thuya burl wood comes from the Sandarac tree (Tetraclinis articulata), a coniferous tree only growing in the Atlas mountains of northern Africa, Morocco and Algeria. The tree also produces Sandarac, an aromatic resin used for varnishes, polishes and for incense purposes. The woods colour varies from a rich, lustrous golden brown to dark brown, nearly black. The eyes, perfectly round, are scattered about in some burls like the figure in bird's-eye maple; in others they are grouped as islands. Thuya burl is hard and dense with a high natural oil and resin content, that makes working with this wood a real pleasure for the craftsman.
Thuya trees along with cedars and others once covered the Atlas Mountains, but due to over cutting and clearing fires, large areas have been treeless for hundreds of years, making this wood very scarce and expensive.
